ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. - With the completion of the women's basketball regular season, the Peach Belt Conference (PBC) released the playoff schedule over the weekend, and Georgia College Women's Basketball (17-11) has nabbed the No. 5-seed, looking play upset Wednesday, Feb. 28 at 6:30 p.m., traveling to No. 4-seed Flagler College (18-8).

The Bobcats will look for some revenge Wednesday, having lost both matchups with the Saints this season. Each of the prior three seasons, Bobcat Women's Hoops has started the tournament at Lander University.

The Bobcats have been balanced all season in their scoring punch, getting nine-plus points per game from six different members of the roster. Tops on the squad is 2016-17 All-PBC Second Teamer Alyah McGriff (Suwanee) as the senior is averaging 13.4 points and 7.5 rebounds per game. Junior Erin Drynan (Chicago, Illinois) is second on the team with 11.1 points per contest, pulling in 7.7 boards.

Drynan has been impressive defensively as well, ranking second in the conference in blocks with 80. She is just three off the Georgia College single-season record.
